LastEmp,
Can you tell us which warranty option you purchased (entire vehicle or just drivetrain) and how much Troy quoted you? I'm at 32k miles and have been quoted $1730 for a 7 year, 125k drivetrain warranty through Wonderies. Also, can you give me Troy's contact information?

I purchased the Platinum Care VSA extended warranty (6 year, 125K miles since I put 20-22K miles per year on the EV, and the 6 years starts from the placed in service/purchase date). This includes the extension of the drivetrain warranty for the same period. I paid $590 less than what you were quoted for 7 years. The Limited Powertrain only extended warranty (to 6 years, 100K) will run ~ $650 so you are better off with the bumper to bumper Platinum Care extended warranty for ~ $500 more (and covered for more miles). Troy can be reached at tdietrich@toyotaofgreenfield.com or (413) 772-0989.
See link for details:
http://www.toyotafinancial.com/pub/w/#p ... ew_vehicle
The VSA PDF brochure shows what's covered and not covered, including the Hybrid coverage:
HYBRID
Drivetrain Warranty: Actuator Assembly Shift Control; Hybrid Vehicle Generator Assembly; Hybrid Vehicle Motor Assembly; Hybrid Vehicle Transaxle Assembly; Transmission Input Damper Assembly;
Platinum VSA: Battery Computer Assembly; Battery Current Sensor; Circuit Breaker Sensor; Combination Meter Assembly; Combination Meter Computer; Hybrid Vehicle Battery Blower Assembly; Hybrid Vehicle Battery Blower Motor Control; Hybrid Vehicle Battery Thermistor; Hybrid Vehicle Control Computer; Inverter Assembly with Converter; Main Switch Assembly; Power Source Control Computer Assembly; Power Steering Electronic Control Unit Assembly; Power Steering Gear Assembly; Shift Lever Position Sensor; Skid Control Computer Assembly; Steering Column Assembly; Transmission Control Module

Does anyone know if the DC-DC is covered under the PowerTrain warranty (5yr/60k) or only Basic Warranty (3yr/36k)?

Also, I notice that every 40k miles/48 months, Toyota recommends replace battery and motor/inverter coolant. Has anyone reached this level yet and had this service done? How much did it cost?

On a side note, they also state to replace the heater coolant at 100k miles/10 years.

Something for us Out-of-Staters to think about.

It looks like the DC-DC is not covered under the powertrain warranty. I listed the items in the warranty booklet that came with the car on the previous page of this thread, here.

When I called Dianne Whitmire to inquire the cost, she said that an extended warranty is not necessary for the RAV4 EV as all components are covered for 8 yrs/125K miles. I even asked her about ICE Rav 4 things, which are also included. It would be nice to have a written reference. If anyone knows the warranty for this car, I surmise it would be her. Thanks, Dianne!

I contacted Troy with Toyota of Greenfield in Mass. about buying an extended warranty for the RAV4 EV. He replied back saying Toyota won't let him sell out of state anymore unless a mailing address in Mass. is provided or I go there in person to purchase it. One of my co-worker's brother lives in Mass so I gave Troy his address and then he forwarded it to me. Ask for a current quote because I received a 6yr/125k for $1140, cheaper than what is listed below.


Here's his email.

Unfortunately, Toyota/Lexus are now restricting dealers from selling policies across state lines. So at the moment, I can only sell a genuine Toyota/Lexus policy if you have a Massachusetts address we can use for the paperwork, or if you can come here in-person to purchase it. (Hint: Do you have any friends or relatives in Mass?)

Assuming we are able to clear that hurdle, here’s all the basic info and quotes:

Vehicle: 2011 – 2014 Rav4 EV with less than 36,000 miles.

Toyota Extra Care, Platinum coverage with $0 deductible:
6 yr / 75K - $685.00
6 yr / 100K - $985.00
6 yr / 125K - $1250.00
7 yr / 75K - $780.00
7 yr / 100K - $1140.00
7 yr / 125K - $1375.00
8 yr / 100K - $1255.00
8 yr / 125K - $1670.00

Most of the details on the Extra Care plans can be found directly at
Toyota's website at the following link, including all the various terms and
options available, just let me know if you would like a quote on a different
plan.

http://www.toyotafinancial.com/pub/w/#p ... ew_vehicle

Here are the purchase instructions if / when you decide to purchase.

I would need you to mail me an original signed letter indicating the exact
current mileage on your vehicle, and a copy of your current registration.(If
you are in a state where you don't get your state registration right away, I
can also use a copy of the bill of sale, purchase contract, or some other
official document which shows the owners name and address, along with the
vehicles VIN)

Sorry, I know its a little inconvenient, but its the only way we could come
up to cover ourselves on the mileage and VIN verification. After I receive
your letter, I can call you for credit card info, if that's how you choose
to pay, or you can include a check, money order, or the credit card info
with it. Also, make sure that the registration copy is legible (I have
gotten a couple of them recently that I couldn't read or had part of the VIN
chopped off on the copy).

Mail to:

Toyota of Greenfield
1 Main Street
Greenfield, MA 01301

Attn: Troy Dietrich

Phone - (413) 772-0231 (Dealership)
Phone - (413) 772-0989 (My direct line).
Fax - (413) 774-2247


Thanks,

Troy

Here's the MaxCare quote. Ignore 2012/2013 differences, this was run on a 2013 in inventory:

Toyota Platinum Care is less expensive.

Dianne has posted that before*, but the only thing I've found is the following in Toyota's brochure:

http://www.toyota.com/content/ebrochure ... ochure.pdf
Quote:
WARRANTIES
Every Toyota Car, Truck and SUV is built to exceptional standards. And that’s not idle boasting. We back it up with
these Limited Warranty Coverages:
Basic: 36 months/36,000 miles (all components other than normal wear and maintenance items).
Traction Battery: 96 months/100,000 miles (regardless of charge mode).
Powertrain: 60 months/60,000 miles (engine, transmission/transaxle, drive system, seatbelts and airbags).
Rust-Through: 60 months/unlimited miles (corrosion perforation of sheet metal).
Accessories: For Genuine Toyota Accessories purchased at the time of the new vehicle purchase, the Toyota
Accessory Warranty coverage is in effect for 36 months/36,000 miles from the vehicle’s in-service date, which is
the same coverage as the Toyota New Vehicle Limited Warranty.
For Genuine Toyota Accessories purchased after the new vehicle purchase the coverage is 12 months, regardless
of mileage, from the date the accessory was installed on the vehicle, or the remainder of any applicable new vehicle
warranty, whichever provides greater coverage, with the exception of car covers. Car covers are warranted for 12
months from the date of purchase and do not assume any coverage under the Toyota New Vehicle Limited Warranty.
You may be eligible for transportation assistance if it’s necessary that your vehicle be kept overnight for repairs
covered under warranty. Please see your authorized Toyota dealership for further details.
For complete details about Toyota’s warranties, please visit http://www.toyota.com, refer to the applicable Warranty
and Maintenance Guide or see your Toyota dealer.


There's also a link for the Warranty and Maintenance Guide, but their site seems to be down at the moment.

edit: OK, it came back up. It says the same thing, but it's in a chart I can't easily copy and paste. I don't know what Dianne is referring to. I'll email and ask her since I bought my car from her. I'd like to get this straight before the basic warranty runs out.

* Apparently not, see below...
